You are playing with the devil / #poem

IMG_1021 
You are playing with the devil
the way you are treating yourself
the way you are rejecting goodness
and the truth of how others are helping you

well meant are the arrows from a friend,
disabling the pride that is hurting you,
and keeping you in darkness

and you cannot always see the difference,
from the arrows of destruction,
that you once knew, and when you lost faith
in humanity,
or the people around you

the bodies around you are meant to embrace you,
and the kindness you so long for,
are meant to keep you from harm

so you are playing with the devil,
by rejecting yourself
and the way you are rejecting kindness

For the kindness of friends
is maybe the only way
God can 
reach you now
